Take your college experience to the next level.
We get some of the brightest and most creative, driven and innovative students at Lipscomb University. That’s why we’ve established the Honors College, a rigorous, multi-disciplinary academic challenge for individuals who are committed and determined to plan for their future success as soon as they set foot on campus.
Our honors curriculum provides you with the opportunity to enhance your academics through in-depth critical thinking projects and research studies, expand your perspective through intentional service and community engagement, and take part in summer internship and development opportunities — all of which occurs alongside a cohort of like-minded peers with similar aspirations and goals.
By joining Lipscomb’s Honors College, you will not only be prepared to succeed academically — you will set yourself up for continuing success well after graduation, both professionally and personally. Start living out your full potential now.
Students enrolled in Lipscomb’s Honors College have the option to participate in academic research on or off campus, or through international research labs. You will engage in interdisciplinary projects and courses that go deeper than most and expand your understanding of a variety of subjects, issues, systems and schools of thought. Student scholars also have the opportunity to share their research findings publically at our annual Student Scholar Symposium or at an academic conference.
Be encouraged to take on leadership roles at Lipscomb that allow you to make a difference within the university community and in the city of Nashville. Serve in the Student Government Association, the Honors College Council, service clubs, social clubs, athletic teams and more. With each role you step into, you will enhance your undergraduate experience and continue to confidently pave your way to a successful future.
Participate in field experiences across the Nashville community. Whether you're picnicking with a zookeeper, attending a musical or symphony, white water rafting on nearby rapids or visiting a local Amish community, you'll be seeing the city through the lens of learning. Our planned activity programming, called Honors Connect, will help you better understand the place you live and develop a stronger sense of your own interests and aptitudes.
